Our last trip was down to Cassis, which is on the Mediterranean 20 km from Marseilles, the weekend of the 6th of December. It was lovely to have some sunshine and warmer weather.
Although this photo doesnt really do it justice, the houses were painted bright shades of yellow and pink.The main part of Cassis surrounds a harbor, and the buildings on the water are mostly restaurants.It also had a small and rocky beach, where some people were actually swimming.The town had a little Christmas market. The market featured a band playing traditional regional songs, the sound of which were completely unfamiliar. They didnt sound like typical old French music.Cassis is surrounded by hills.The most notable feature of the area is the Calanques, which are big limestone cliffs that go out into the sea. We went for a hike out along them.The terrain was a bit lunar.
